Deco meets disco and it all adds up at Counter
We visited while the restaurant was still on soft-launch, so were willing to be lenient on the service, but as it turned out were impressed with knowledgeable and slick floor staff.
COUNTER brings a touch of New York’s ‘happening’ Meatpacking District to what is Europe’s largest urban regeneration area and is the top casual dining destination in this exciting neighbourhood.
Very contemporary, very now and very relaxing.

COUNTER Vauxhall Arches is the all-day bar & brasserie serving up an eclectic feast of freshly made seasonal French and American inspired dishes along with some of the Capital’s best tasting cocktails (including our signature Vauxhall Vespa), mocktails, craft beers and exclusively sourced French and American wines.
Located just seconds from Vauxhall station, COUNTER is officially London’s longest restaurant housed in a 200-foot long arch (which could easily accommodate Nelson’s Column) and open seven days a week for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner.
Dubbed ‘Deco meets Disco’, the look and ambiance of COUNTER combines the heritage of Vauxhall’s historic reputation for pleasure-seeking alongside glittering antiqued mirrors, lacquered grey tones and custom-made lighting.
